Key: G
Capo on 4th fret
I play it with a  
Capo on the 4th fret. If you don't have a capo, scroll down 
to see the non-capo version. 

From what I can tell, most of the actual song drones on one or two chords. 
These chords are pretty much based on the vocal melody, but it still sounds 
good if you play along with the album or by yourself.  

All chords relative to the  
Capo on the 4th fret.
